Product manager for AMD customers, Travis Kirsch said at the Next Horizon Gaming event.
This is not the first time in a few months now that the online community has surfed about upcoming AMD products, especially the Ryzen 3000 series with theoretical performance that can finally bring down Intel for the first time. after many years.
At AMD's Next Horizon Gaming program, in the framework of the E3 2019 event, revealed the appearance of the most advanced CPU in the Ryzen 3000 generation with the name Ryzen 9 3950X with 16 cores / 32 threads and clock rate 3.5 Ghz / 4.7 Ghz, 72MB cache, electric used 105W. There have been many speculations that AMD will "stock" this highest-end product until the end of the year so that it can react to Intel in case Intel Ice Lake suddenly launches and makes it difficult for the "Red Team". However, it seems that AMD has another plan and frankly launches its biggest trump card, a step in line with the CPU manufacturer's philosophy from Santa Clara. According to the announcement at Next Horizon Gaming, Ryzen 9 3950X It is expected to be officially on sale in September this year at a price $749.
In addition, AMD shared more detailed information about Zen 2. In particular, thanks to double L3 cache capacity and lower memory latency, we can expect improved performance. up to 21% in 1080p titles.
Based on AMD tests, Ryzen 9 3900X confront directly with Intel Core i9-9900K in 1080p gaming territory but breaking up before doing creative tasks like Cinebench R20 or Adobe Premier. The same story happened Ryzen 7 3800X with Intel Core i7-9700K good Ryzen 5 3600X with Core i5-9600K.
If you are a person who likes to squeeze all the power gained from memory, then AMD Zen 2 will be a great choice. DDR4-3200 is officially supported, although the company says that DDR4-5100 is the number that can be achieved thanks to the design of the new memory controller. However DDR4-3733 is suitable for best performance because Infinity Fabric has 1: 1 ratio with memory clock at this point.
Early users will also be happy to know that the Windows 10 May 2019 update is optimized for Zen, providing a better understanding of topology for CCX design. AMD says users can expect to improve performance by up to 15% only from Windows updates. AMD further revealed that all 9-generation Ryzen 7 and Ryzen CPUs all come with high-end AMD Prism Cool Wraith featuring the Razer Chroma built-in.
Turning to the graphic aspect, AMD announced the Radeon RX 5700 series included RX 5700 XT and RX 5700. RX 5700 XT is a more advanced version with 40 compute units and 2,560 stream processors, delivering 9.75 TFLOPs. The Boost clock of this video card reached 1905MHz and Game Clock at 1755 MHz.
Step down one step lower RX 5700 with 36 compute units, 2,304 stream processors and 7.95 TFLOPs performance. Boost Clock and Game Clock are 1.725MHz and 1.625MHz respectively, but memory configurations, ROPs and texture units will be similar to the XT version. The power consumption for each video card is 225W for the version XT and 180W 5700 standard.
In the performance comparison table provided by AMD, Radeon RX 5700 XT It gives considerable power compared to the Vega 56. It is also ahead of the RTX 2070, although the difference is somewhat closer. Similarly, the RX 5700 is better than the RX 2060 in the 1440p configuration, according to AMD. However, this number is only one way and we need to report in more detail once these products are officially on sale.
Both products will be "released" on July 7, RX 5700 XT there will be price $ 449 when RX 5700 The price is $ 379.
One of the other notable information about the new RX 5700 series is that the new Radeon Display Engine will support Display Stream Compression 1.2a. This means supporting screens up to 4K @ 240Hz, 4K HDR @ 120Hz and 8K HDR @ 60Hz Although this new video card line does not support HDMI 2.1 configuration.
More overview of RDNA architecture, calculation unit has been redesigned to achieve superior strength and efficiency. This means that this is not an evolutionary version of GCN (Polaris card architecture) but a completely new one that reduces execution latency, better single-thread performance, and buffer design Improve and synthesize resources better.
AMD said RDNA gain improve performance up to 25% per clock when compared with GCN. In the same configuration, AMD said the level of performance increased 50%. Performance per watts is also 1.5 when compared to Vega.
Finally, AMD Radeon Software Adrenaline 2019 Edition (version 19.7.1) released in July will bring some anti-lag features, improve response time to monitors and AMD. Radeon Image Sharpening – A smart sharpening technology will be Decorative by Nvidia DLSS.
This post-processing effect has little or no effect on performance (about one percent) and, best, supports thousands of new and old games. However, you will need a RX 5700 series GPU to use it.
